Higher Education Scholarship: 2023 Results

Capital Credit Union is delighted to announce the winners of the 2023 Higher Education Scholarship Draw!


2023 was another busy year for the Capital Credit Union’s Higher Education Scholarship with almost 300 entries!

Applications were divided between Capital Credit Union’s €1,500 Scholarship for those in a Level 7 or higher and those applying for the €500 Scholarship who were studying a Level 5/6 on the NFQ.

Supporting education and young people in the community is a core ethos of Capital Credit Union, which was a primary factor in introducing the Scholarship.

Since its launch, the Scholarship has been a huge success, especially since the introduction of the Level 5/6 Scholarship which makes it even more inclusive – allowing anyone from a PLC to a PhD to apply!

I have previously worked passionately in disability and elderly services, a cause close to my heart, and worked with RADE (Recovery through Arts and Drama) in Dublin. My return to education is driven by a genuine desire to make a difference, with Social Care as my chosen path. Once qualified, it will enable me to become a CORU registered professional and give back to our community. I extend my deepest gratitude to Capital Credit Union and its members for their support on my educational journey. – Nichola

My wife and I have just recently moved to Dublin to start our postgraduate journeys. At the moment, we are living off our savings in order to be able to fully invest our time and thinking into our courses. The money awarded will contribute to financing our education and help us fully focus on our studies and prepare to contribute to the further development of society in our areas. Thank you! – Marco

I’ve been a member of Capital Credit Union since I was 8. I am currently studying Level 6 Business Management at TUD Aungier street. My course is for 2 years after which I hope to progress to Level 8 Business and Management course. I am so happy to have won €500 in the scholarship draw. This will definitely help towards my college expenses including transport to and from college every day. Thank you! – Isabelle
